Aquarius Lunation Cycle, February 4 – March 5, 2019:
The New Moon in Aquarius begins a 29.6-day cycle supporting group involvement and humanitarian ideals. Follow up on opportunities via friendships, associations, clubs, and civic associations. Move forward with a discerning eye for the blurring of illusion and reality. Be aware of the difference between fear and faith, and caution and confidence, especially with regard to the future. Shift your perspective. Look for spiritual guidance instead of allowing deceptive practices to direct your efforts. Now is the time to think of humanity as a single organism in need of all of its individual parts working together harmoniously.
The cleansing process of the last cycle has opened the space for reinventing dreams. Aquarius correlates to Renewal on the Medicine Wheel. Continue the process of bringing the annual cycle to completion while re-imagining the future. Invite the creative remnants of the past to reinvent themselves as a foundation for the future. This is the cycle for igniting your creative genius. Use it to review and develop your hopes and dreams. Imagine all the amazing ways there are of achieving the future you desire. Listen to the voice within.
Get in touch with your wishes. Reawaken your hope and find inspiration by releasing the fear of being different and embracing your uniqueness. Trust that what makes you different is in service to your purpose.
